Fibroadenoma breast histopathology slides are given below.
Fibroadenomas are the most common benign tumors of female breast. They are biphasic tumors, having an epithelial component and stroma. Epithelial component may sometimes line the cystic spaces as shown below and the cystic spaces ay be compressed by the stroma around it. Fibroademas may increase in size near pregnancy. They may degenerate, infarct , or may calcify (as may be seen in mammographs of very older women) . As stated , these are benign, and kind of safe tumors , since they very rarely increase the risk of cancer.
